Private Listings

Please contact me if any of these properties is of potential interest to you.

NOTE: The Private Listing Network (PLN) doesn’t include the same fields (information) that the regular MLS includes, so I’ve included whatever info I have. Square footage and schools (for instance) aren’t listed in the PLN.

This first listing is one of mine. There are special considerations for this one, so if it’s interesting to you, please contact me ASAP. Please note we haven’t taken professional photos yet (these are phone camera images)
